Pontos (also spelled as Pontus) is the Greek primordial god of the sea. He was the sea itself, not merely its resident deity, who was born from earth at the dawn of creation.



The Protogenoi emerge from Chaos, Pontus (the sea), and Tartarus (the Pit). Both of them harbored feelings for Gaea, but she ultimately chose Ouranos as her husband. Oceanus, his nephew, affectionately referred to him as "Uncle Pontus" as he spent the majority of his time with him.


Being one of the primordial sea gods, he is extremely powerful certainly more so than Oceanus or Poseidon.

  • Hydrokinesis: As the Protogenos of the Sea, Pontos has absolute control over water.
